Depends what you are looking for - West (direct sunset) view/golf, and a N view/golf, and a variety of pool views...?

Also, some of the top floor balconies have slats as cover, and some are solid cover - the rest of the floors are solid (of course) - I do recall how they were differentiated. If it were HOT - and a golf view I would go with solid N view, if WARM then slats. I can't speak to pool views as we have no small kids.

We had a top floor in the newly opened B7 looking West with slats - loved it, but far from pool - which didn't matter to us.

I think most people would prefer buildings 3 and 5 for the combination of views, proximity to the small starbucks/deli and registration in building 1 and proximity to the pool area.

The newer buildings, 6 & 7, are farther removed from the other amenities. It's quieter over there. Being newer, they are probably in better shape. And, the walk to the pool is not really much of a burden, 5 minutes at most.

For me (with grown kids), buildings 2 and 4 are out. Only views of the pool.

Except for buildings 2 and 4, all the patios/balconies (brownish squares on the link Denise posted) face outward.

Kierland Villas is a great place to visit. I'll be there again 10-19 to 10-26. Enjoy your visit!
